Impact of Black Saturday bushfire plume and other pyrocarbon emissions on stratospheric ozone above Antarctica
Entry ID: AAS_3229

Abstract: Metadata record for data from AAS (ASAC) project 3229.

Public Summary:
We investigate the impact of Black Saturday Australian bushfire in 2009 on the atmosphere above Australia and in the southern hemisphere in general, including Antarctica. Using high quality measurements collected by modern satellite and ground-based instruments, we study vertical and horizontal motion of the smoke plume, ... View entire text
